Hi everyone

We’ve just launched a new unlimited broadband and SKY offer which includes free SKY basic for 6 months ($48.07 value per month) as well as the existing SKY discounts (free install if new to SKY, free $15 MySKYHDi decoder rental etc). Of course it’s available with our Vodafone TV decoder for InHome Cable and UFB Fibre as well.

This offer is available to new and existing customers and starts at $95 for phone and unlimited broadband with a 24 month term. More info on the site here http://www.vodafone.co.nz/freesky/

Cheers

Dylan

Interesting offer. Would this be available with Vodafone TV over Fibre in UFF areas? Any ETA on that?

Sounds like a sweet deal, but you have to have a mobile on contract with Vodafone... Which for me is never going to happen.

Good news, yes it is available with the Vodafone TV decoder on InHome Cable and UFB Fibre, as well as normal SKY decoders with ADSL and VDSL broadband. Because it's available for so many different connection combinations there's a bit of extra info available on the link above. If in doubt give the team a call and they'll find out about the options available to you, their number is 0800 222 664.

Sorry to hear that. The home phone, home broadband and SKY packages are still a great deal without the $10 On Account mobile discount, so in that case it starts at $105.

On Account yes, On a Contract? No. You can be on one of our Open term On Account plans and still enjoy the $10/month discount.

Any chance of extending this offer to naked DSL plans? That might convince me to switch to vodafone.

The 24 month contract period is a bit nasty.

Handle9: The 24 month contract period is a bit nasty.


Yeah. Assuming you'd have Sky anyway, if you do the maths then 6 months free Sky over a 24 month contract is an effective discount of $12.02 per month over the 24 months (compared to normal vodafone plans), at the cost of locking you in for 24 months. Still a good deal, but not quite as great as it first seems. Wonder if you get the first month free as you would if you just signed up to Vodafone broadband (as a new customer).

Are you able to change plans within that term?
Fibre won't be available to me for a couple more months, can i switch to it when it arrives and will I incur any additional costs by doing so?

Sounds great. Just a note though, the website makes no mention of cable just "ADSL, VDSL and UFB"

I have just moved to VF VDSL a week or so ago, with the intention of moving to fibre in 4 weeks. They have repeatedly told me that I would not incur additional charges. May have to resign my 24 month contract though, but I will only be 1 month into the current one.

Hey Paul, the offer is available on Cable. Fibre and Cable are under the Ultra Fast Broadband category on the website, that'll be the reason.

The offer sounds great, however I have been waiting over a month for a technician to set up VDSL and am still on 150GB ADSL plan.  THey could have at least changed it to unlimited.
